Four years in, God’s True Cashmere is in growth mode, with a new e-commerce site, plans to launch more styles and a push to expand wholesale. “We want the shirts to be the face of the brand,” Pitt said.
The shirts are the luxe version of the flannel shirts of ’90’s grunge (Brad Pitt was an icon of that style, by the way), which is current experiencing a renaissance. A cool must-have that belongs in every wardrobe.
The line evolved into a luxe offering of 100% cashmere pieces made in Italy, with the yarns sourced from various ethical goat farms. “We’d love to have our own goat farms [one day],” Sat Hari says. “And to name all our goats,” Pitt adds.
It was the flannel that shot across the internet. Brad Pitt was handing out groceries in Los Angeles as a charitable gesture in the lead-up to Thanksgiving. The paparazzi on hand captured Mr. Pitt’s charmingly casual outfit. That beguiling flannel stole the show and fans raced to identify it.
Whenever I wonder whether it is possible to truly understand Los Angeles, particularly its relationship to fashion and style, I think about a shirt. It is, in fact, a basic plaid red shirt whose cozy cashmere weave belies its humble appearance, whose Western-style snaps are inset with healing semiprecious stones. For this you can thank Brad Pitt.
